How to Deal With Shame

Shame is the unshakable feeling that we don’t belong, tempting us to run away from God and his people. Shame can be tied to something done to us, something we have done, or something we have continued to do. As hard as it is to open up about shame, it’s even harder to address in the church. Pastor Mike dares us to cross that line and show what can happen when a Christian community learns to deal with shame.
